Overwhelmed by the Complexity of Games? This May Help

Preparing for Your Next Escape Room Escapade

The challenges posed by Escape Rooms will always be unique, so you can’t really be ready for them. If you think that’s true, then you’re bound to lose the game. No matter the efforts of escape room creators, they will always end up repeating some elements which, if you’re observant enough, will help you advance to the succeeding step.

Of course, the main idea is to maintain good observation and communication skills even when tensions run high. But other than that, there are tips you can keep in mind to ensure that your future Escape Room encounters will be more successful than ever.

Don’t obsess.

One common problem is when groups are too obsessed with a certain detail when they’re supposed to be searching for other leads. Multitasking is the perfect solution. Assign some members of your group to linger on an extremely difficult puzzle while others work hunt for more clues. In general, whenever you feel like you’ve reached a dead end, and disconnect yourself from the frustrating element so you can restore some clarity that you will need to figure out a solution.

Talk and listen to your group.

Communication is one of the secrets to a successful Escape Room adventure. If you find something that looks like a clue, whether you’re sure or not, announce it! If you feel that you’ve uncovered the solution but you could use some of your group mates’ thoughts, ask them. Otherwise, you will almost surely fail; on the other hand, engaging with one another can only make all of you smarter than ever.

Be patient and optimistic.

Now take note, you have but a tiny amount of time to accomplish the goal. Wasting one second of that time in a negative mindset only harms your chances further. Fact is, enthusiasm can beat brain power anytime in an Escape Room environment.

Most games are to be solved without having to learn anything beforehand, so your quantum physics degree or ten-year reign as a national chess champion will only make you overthink the mysteries. What does improve your chances of success is a fun and enthusiastic approach. So enjoy each step, maximize every second you have, and support your team members when they seem like they’re on a roll. These are some of the most crucial methods of getting the victory you want.

Some people think asking this request for a hint is like accepting defeat. However, it can’t be defeat unless the clock has hit zero. So, forget your pride and ask for that help if you need it.
